What Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Do?


Laser skin resurfacing is designed to address a number of cosmetic imperfections including:

  • Wrinkles and creases
  • Pigment irregularities
  • Age and sun spots
  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Tone and texture variances
  • Pre-cancerous skin conditions

Using the Fraxel® Dual Laser, Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. John Corey is able to address these and similar cosmetic imperfections to produce a flawlessly beautiful and radiantly youthful appearance. The best way to learn if laser skin resurfacing is right for your needs is by calling our office at 480-767-7700 and scheduling a one-on-one skin care consultation with Dr. Corey.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Recovery

Although it is a nonsurgical procedure, laser skin resurfacing may come with a small recovery period. However, unlike more invasive skin resurfacing techniques, the Fraxel Dual Laser reduces or eliminates this period for most patients.

Slight irritation, similar to a sun burn, may follow your treatment procedure, but this should subside on its own within a few days. Topical moisturizers can help reduce this sensitivity but should not be used without first consulting Dr. Corey about the efficacy and ingredients of your preferred brand. This can be discussed in greater detail during your laser skin resurfacing consultation.

To schedule your laser skin resurfacing consultation at our Scottsdale office, please contact John J. Corey, MD today. Dr. Corey serves all of Arizona including Chandler, and Phoenix.
